“Power and Identity: Philosophical Reflections on Liberation” Cambridge MAP Conference 18th June 2018 University of Cambridge
The Cambridge MAP Chapter is hosting a one-day conference on 18th June 2018. Following the success of the annual Cambridge Women in Philosophy conference, which in 2017 brought together more than forty attendees from across Europe and North America, we have broadened our scope and this year we are seeking to foreground more minority voices in academic philosophy.
As part of an international organisation with participations from Harvard to Manchester, each MAP Chapter is united by their broad aims to address (a) minority issues in the profession, (b) theoretical issues regarding philosophy of gender, race, class, sexual orientation, disability, native language, etc., and (c) philosophy done from minority perspectives.
Through our conference, we aim to explore and analyse the ways in which identity and power interact, and to engage with issues such as the epistemological power of identity categories, the characterisation of the intersections of power relations, and what liberation within the academy might look like. Additionally, by highlighting the work of contemporary philosophers of marginalised identities, we seek to secure space within philosophy for such work to thrive.
There are a mix of slots for invited speakers and student submissions: we encourage undergraduate, MPhil and PhD students to submit abstracts for consideration.
Further information about abstract submission is in the attached poster. FOR ATTENDEES:Everyone is welcome! The conference is free to attend, but registration is necessary.
